This book investigates the concept of stress, how it causes a cluster of life-threatening diseases, in particular Alzheimer's disease, and what you can do to save yourself. It is the summation of what the author, a neurologist, has learned about stress throughout his career. Stress damages the brain in specific ways that cause migraine headaches, high blood pressure, and diabetes. These conditions lead eventually to Alzheimer's disease. The take-home message of the book is that cutting the nerve supply to the adrenal glands can prevent Alzheimer's disease. This book will appeal to the medical community, including doctors, nurses, and medical students, as well as to the general reader who suffers from stress or is worried about Alzheimer's disease.
